Elementary Download


Tried to download Elementary OS from the eOS site. Redirected to source forge only download option is amd64? So question is whether or not there is x86-64 version? Can't download from their official .io redirected to this sorce forge after declining any payment?

based on this: http://www.reddit.com/r/elementaryos...aryos_luna_32/ and other sites there should be a 32bit release too.

Thanks pan64, I saw the 32bit but was looking for 64bit for intel.
It was my old G4powerbook browser... finally managed to download amd64 version of freya it has a folder in it x86plus that I'm hoping is x86-64. I burned a bootable install disk. Anyone use a bootable dvd instead of the USB Hdd? I'm not installing onto windows or mac. Thought I would run eOS on its own disk?

AMD64 and x86_x64 are synonyms for being compatible with a x64 isntall. Some people call it one some call it the other. I have seen a big move towards the x86_x64 recently. I have installed amd64 Freya on a 64 bit machine with a i3 without any problems.

AMD created the 64-bit model used by both AMD and Intel. For some reason Intel doesn't like to call it amd64.
